    Car makers face screen test to judge safety

    With even Audi caving and going all in on touchscreens, a lot of the people/journos who loved the dial controller method of interaction have switched teams. They hate on Mazda especially for not including a touchscreen despite their own studies finding that drivers who interact with touchscreen...

    There are a few brands here that offer remote roll up via keyfob IIRC but they put pinch protection on all windows. Not sure if VW does this, they prob do and are just super conservative here given our litigious nature.

    Yeah, we were using it at work for Chromebook printing and migrated to another solution as soon as the rumors swirled about GCP's demise. Still a adjustment though.

    UAZ Patriot off-roader is coming to America as the 2022 Bremach Taos

    This looks interesting but man launching a new brand in the US is hard. Hopefully they can make it work, it'd be cool to see something like this on the roads. Gives off sorta kinda XJ vibes with the whole "it's got 2 solid axles but it's not a wrangler" thing. EDIT: They're almost certainly...

    That or they need to decide whether they truly want Maserati or Alfa to play there. I mean honestly it should probably be Maserati that is their pure luxury brand while Alfa focuses on sport. Like seriously, why are there two Italian luxury brands (not counting Ferrari)...either differentiate...

    Honestly looking at the current product line, I can see them discontinuing Chrysler. In previous FCA plans, Chrysler was going to be the "mainstream" brand - think Ford, Chevy, Toyota and Honda. Dodge was going to transition solely to performance oriented offerings: there was rumors/plans of a...

    Ownership Verified: You May Not Like It, But This Is What Peak Performance Looks Like - 2012 Kia Forte EX

    Update time, this'll be a long one... Good news: The car successfully passed state inspection - only thing it needed was windshield wipers! It will need tires by next year. Bad news: I took it in for state inspection early because of this event in October: It was dark and rainy and I was...

    The Ultimate OS X Thread

    This just looks like a rip off lmao: In other news, after adding "mac guy" to my duties at the school a year or two ago, I think i've found what I want to specialize in. I'm working on my Jamf 100 now (know the material just need to finish up and confirm my knowledge/fill in gaps). My plan...
